Sharyn Brand


Sharyn is interested in understanding culture through a focus of sound based urban ethnography. I am particularly interested in the juxtaposition of the human voice and the sounds of the natural environment. Currently her work is investigating the notion of the sound bite. How a short 30-second recording of words may speak of one thing, yet, the same words can be edited, truncated and rearranged, then heard differently. Sharyn’s work is as much an exploration of listening as it is of sound. With her partner she has renovated a 1983 Millard Caravan, The Grand Caravan is a portable purpose-built sound installation and arts venue.
